There are two pieces that I would like to add to the Raptors...and both of those pieces are with the Clippers. I am not talking about anything unrealistic like Blake Griffen or Eric Gordon (neither would happen). Here is my proposed trade:
Raptors Trades the following to the Clippers:
-and Sonny Weems
Clippers Trade the following to the Raptors:
-and Minnesota's 2011 First Round Pick
I know it is a tough pill to swallow for a lot of people to trade Bargs (others would love it no matter what), but here is my logic.
I think the Clippers make this trade in order to pair Bargnani and Blake Griffen together. They could really balance one another well as Bargs could spread the floor to open lanes, provide pretty good man-on-man defense which would allow Griffen to bring the help D. They could really work well together.
Julian Wright also would provide them with either an expiring contract or an RFA which they can retain to pair with Aminu for the SF spot. And Sonny could be resigned for fairly cheap to provide a back-up to Eric Gordon.
Why for the Raptors? DeAndre Jordon is a fantastic young center prospect. He is only 22 but has developed a nice game near the basket on the offensive side of the ball. But where he really brings a skill set is on the defensive side. He is 6-11 (some say 7ft), 265lbs, and has great defensive skills. Over the last 4 games he has averaged 5.5blocks against good competition (Utah, Atlanta, Den, GS). Him, Ami, and Davis could be a really strong defensive unit while bringing great rebounding.
Gomes and Foye would basically be absorbing crap contracts from the Clippers (Gomes has 2 more seasons of $4mil each after this, and Foye has 1 more season of $4.25mil). By giving them the cheaper options of Weems and Wright and obsorbing the extra money our way, Clippers throw in Minnesota's First Round pick.
The Minnesota pick is top 10 protected in 2011, and unprotected in 2012. High odds say that it would be a high pick in the 2012 draft which is supposed to be loaded.
